Andy Lee has issued a challenge to fellow Irish boxer Matthew Macklin. He says the fight would be a massive event in Ireland and it would be make or break in either boxer's career.
Lee outlined the reasons he wants an 'Irish High Noon Shootout.'
"Matthew and I have both fought recently, we're both from Ireland, we're both middleweights, we're similarly rated, we're both in a similar position in our careers. So let's give the boxing public the fight they cravve and let the best man win.
This is a massive fight in Ireland, Boston, Chicago or New York and will pack any venue. I am ready for the fight, we both have the same promoter, Lou DiBella therefore the fight can easily be put together.
The fight would be a critical moment in both fighters' careers, a win for either of us would propel us to a world title fight again, whoever wins the fight will go on and whoever loses the fight will have to either pack it in or start again. It is a fight I want; people talk about it all the time, so let's make it happen."
